Reports on the Plateau killings mainly dominated the cover pages of Nigerian newspapers.

The Punch reports that residents of communities affected by violent attacks in Plateau state have fled over fear of further attacks. The newspaper says the unprecedented depreciation of the naira against the dollar is causing widespread distress for individuals planning international travel and foreign education.
THISDAY’s cover story highlights 24 high-achieving women to watch in 2024. The newspaper reports the federal government has finally received $2.25 billion out of the $3.3 billion foreign exchange (FX) facility from the African Export–Import Bank (Afreximbank).
The Guardian reports that the massacre of residents in some communities in Plateau state shows that the country’s intelligence architecture is not working. The newspaper says the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has criticised President Bola Tinubu for failing to visit Plateau communities.
The Nation reports that various political groups in Ondo state have started lobbying for the position of deputy governor. The newspaper says Vice-President Kashim Shettima said President Bola Tinubu is determined to end violent attacks in the south-east zone.
